We stopped here after spending a couple of hours at the aquarium. Had lunch out on the deck. Tables were a little crowded but service was excellent and food was very good. Great place to chill out on a beautiful day.

Romantic couple trip. I have never tasted fried calamari so good!! Freshly picked from that very same bay! Not the frozen rings you see in chains. Thick crispy batter NOT greasy at all. Never seen something like this before. Had a wonderful view at sunset. Shared a nicely portioned Macadamia crusted halibut. Yummy! Topped w a bubbly to celebrate, couldnt be more perfect!

Thanksgiving Day - We ate seafood, not the turkey. The food, service, and ocean view were awesome. Be prepared to drop a couple hundred bucks on dinner for four. I will return!

Good food but not cheap. The speciality of the house seems to be California Abalone. Not worth it. Rubbery and bland. Stick with the simple grilled fish dishes.
